Storyline

A heavy smoker for thirty years, television news anchor Dana Hancock was dying of lung cancer. She continued to smoke even after her original diagnosis, the cancer from which went into remission before returning. She started smoking at age 15 to attract Bruce Bennett, the high school heartthrob. Even before Othniel, she admits that she enjoyed smoking, the reason she didn't quit even after her diagnosis and despite the known health risks. She also admits that she would do anything to not have started smoking in the first place. Othniel sends her back as Ann Rutherford, Dana's high school guidance counselor. Convincing a teenager who has a sense of invincibility not to smoke will be a tall order for Miss Rutherford. But as Miss Rutherford, Dana learns of some previously unknown-to-her family history that could stop her younger self from continuing to smoke. Written by Huggo
